Colorado shooter identifies as woman in voter registration


A voter registration file indicates that the shooter who allegedly killed three in Colorado Springs on Friday identifies as a woman with no party affiliation.

The file indicates that Robert Lewis Dear, Jr. of Hartsel, Colo., registered to vote in Park County on Oct. 17, 2014. Dear's party affiliation is UAF, which is used to mean unaffiliated or independent, and selected "female" for gender.

The genealogy website "Colorado Voters," which works by pulling public voter lists, has Dear's voter registration file posted online.
